Botanical Prints #34 - Aloe Vera


Today's Botanical Print is the Aloe Vera plant. Like previous prints, I used a gelli-printed (monoprinted) background.  The background image is very light as compared to some of my other prints. I did this using "ghost prints" or the bonus print -- from a mono print.  After the first print is taken or pulled, some paint remains in the plate.  I placed my paper on the leftovers and got this image.  It is faint, but interesting.  I love how bold the plant looks against it.
